SAE's and moss... (was fern)

Anyone else out there have a problem with their sae's eating their ferns? A couple of months ago I had the sae's strip the ferns to where they were looking like algae strands. I thought I'd try it again, and guess what, they're at it again.

I'll also take any ideas on how to change their appetites. :D

Yes, they certainly need a supplement if there's no algae in the tank or they might move on to other plants too.

However, mine do get algae wafers, etc. and they still mowed down the J. Moss. Even the Silver Dollars (lawn mowers) in another tank don't chow the stuff the way the SAE's do. :?
